Goodbye DT, Hello … bum. (童貞バイバイ、転職組みなる)

My last working day was 20th November 2009.
The week was full of pleasant and not-so-pleasant surprises.
Let’s start with the unpleasantries.
I was forced to sign out of the unassigned log after I rejected the Resource Mashing Terminator’s request to help out the SevereMentalBreakdown team after 2 assistants and a laptop fell ill.
Well, good luck to Severe Mental Breakdown team because the core continuity Chin Jean and I are gone.
For goodness sakes, I have my own planning to do for my own job and the charge code was not opened even on my last day.
Anyhow, other than having to work till 8.30pm everyday, bringing home some crap to clear and breaking my thumbnail to half, the unpleasant stuff is just about it.

Now for the nice stuff.
I discovered the first person in Deloitte who actually shares the same interest in a particular genre *cough 801 cough*!!!
And she’s none other than my co-auditor in charge.

Lion’s Tail and 1wRong had a slight change in their work schedules and were able to make it back to office to send me off.
Shar was in office too, getting herself sick over Pee&Gee, Byecom and other little pieces of dung.

The lavender card with no smell… …but with lots of love inside (^w^)
Thank you my dearies!

The assistant who braved the scoldings and suffering with me at SevereMentalBreakdown last year came down to the 28th floor for the first time. It’s almost like fate brought her done to take a photo with me on my last day. Woohoo!

All the inhabitants of the particular cursed row with bad fengshui were all present too to send me off (except for Rocky).
The last of these is Chua KK whose last day is on my birthday, 8th Dec. Ironically, he’s the 1st to initiate the ‘break up’ with Delete & Touch Tomatoes.

Another leaver is Mars, who’s seconded to the China office.

I’m going to miss all my dear friends and fellow dungpickers at Delete Touch and Tomatoes…
The friendly administrative staff on 31st floor…
Amoy Food centre and ABC juice …
Even some of my favourite dung clients like SevereMentalBreakdown…

Well, as for this, I won’t miss it. Hell no.

Missed target

I guess a good thing about keeping things under wraps is when things go wrong, it is kept out of sight.

It saves everyone a lot of embarrassment and explanation.

Dear reader, you must be wondering what shit I’ve got myself into this time.
It’s a little emotional splatter. Nothing serious.
Okay, the background (minus all the delicious bits to spare your delicate moral being):

-Met J in J’s paintchat and was drawn (sorry for the pun) by the lovely Frioniel in the most compromising positions

– J left comments in my Teblog with enthusiasm overflowing

– During one of J’s echa, J initiated a Skype instant message session

–  (^p^) Unmentionables in said Skype session

– Unmentionables continue for the 3rd night until J requested to see my picture whereby I directed J to this blog

– After that, J is suddenly caught up with other paint chat sessions and activities (or so I’ve been told by J).

– I sent a message via Teblog to end it all

– Regretted action after receiving J’s reply that J was sorry for not being the One

– Replied with an apology and requested to reconcile once more but J’s next reply was ‘I will not chase after people who have gone out of my life’ 

The End someone online and we had cybrsx. (Somebody kill me.)

It was an overwhelming experience. Who would have thought mere words could have such a powerful influence on the mind and body. And in a foreign language to boot.
We shared things which should be kept private and there was a lot of romancing like exchanging love notes daily (for only 3 days).
Honestly, I desired this person enough to want to fly to see em.
All these in a span of two weeks.

The infatuation didn’t last.
For the other party that is.

I guess the anathema to the romance was my photo. Or my reticence. Or shame (What? Me? Ashamed?).

It took me 3 months to fully let it go (although my ego sometimes entertains the thought of redemption) especially after realising how childish it was to have a crush on someone I’ve never even seen before when I already have the love from the people around me.

As for the unmentionables?

I can get the same eye-rolling high by working out in the gym.
